V188: My Torpedo-Boat War Missions (Great War at Sea) Volume 1

A German Torpedoboat commander's view of the war during 1914-1915. Lt. Callisen recounts his immediate pre and early war experiences commanding V188 to include the Heligoland Bight action, the Whitby Hartlepool bombardment, the routines and dangers of sorties leading to his account of being torpedoed by H.M. E16. Assigned to command torpedboboat V191, Calisen also describes his Baltic Sea experiences culminating in the double sinking of V191 and the cruiser Bremen to Russian mines. The account is annotated with reports from British, German and Russian archives to include the War Diary (KTB) of the Torpedoboat Flotilla, Callisen's Loss Report and numerous other primary sources clarifying relevant actions. The only published account of a German torpedoboat commander. V188 is highly regarded among German war literature researchers for its veracity and straightforward descriptions of active service.
